Jay-Z and Kanye West’s friendship and fallout will be chronicled in an upcoming TV special called Public Enemies. According to a press release, the special will feature “unseen footage and unheard testimonies.”
“One is a New York street dude. The other dude is a mama’s boy from Chicago,” says legendary producer DJ Clark Kent.
Music journalist Touré adds: “JAY-Z is very thoughtful about money. Kanye is spend-it-all, art-comes-first.”
The special comes after both expressed some grievances with each other publicly.
Last fall, Kanye blasted Jay onstage during his “The Life of Pablo Tour”, saying the mogul would not return his call. “Jay Z, call me,” he said. “You still ain’t called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man.”
This year, Jay addressed his issues with Kanye on the 4:44 track “Kill Jay Z”. “You got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye,” he raps. “You gave him 20 million without blinkin’ / He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck was he thinkin’?”
“Public Enemies: JAY-Z vs. Kanye” airs July 31 at 10 p.m. on the UK’s Channel 4.
